Whether you love her or hate her, there’s no denying that Kim Kardashian is one of the biggest names in entertainment. At the very least, the reality TV star is practically inescapable if you’re ever online. Yet while Kim hasn’t always been so well known, she has been in the public eye for longer than you may think. Back in the day, you see, the future social media mogul played second fiddle to another celebrity – and she was often snapped by her buddy’s side, too.
Perhaps Kim’s first brush with fame came, however, as a result of her association with O.J. Simpson. Yes, as many fans know, her father, Robert Kardashian, was on the ex-NFL star’s defense team during Simpson’s highly publicized murder trial. Not only that, but the former footballer player is actually Kim’s godfather.
What’s more, it turns out that Robert may be partly responsible for a certain aspect of his second daughter’s business empire. While Kim was a teenager, you see, her dad paid for her to go to beauty school and learn the tricks of the trade. And in turn, that knowledge in turn may have helped the star in overseeing her own make-up line, KKW Beauty.
